Looks lovely. Just two questions... :-)

What license is AndNav2 available under? My Google fu has failed me on 
this one.
Also, are there any plans for Windows Mobile? Android seems to be in the 
dark ages when it comes to bluetooth support, so I had to go to the dark 
side for a PDA/phone :-/

Regards

Kyle
